Bug Description

Hi, here's a patch for Mailman 2.x that enables it using SMTP AUTH and TLS connection. This features might be useful on more paranoid SMTP servers.

The patch seems good except if SMTP_USE_TLS is set True in mm_cfg.py, the patch references mm_cfg.SMTP_HELO_HOST which is neither defined nor documented in the patch.

Perhaps the patch to Defaults.py.in should include something like

SMTP_HELO_HOST = DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST

or even

SMTP_HELO_HOST = ''

and some comments describing what all the new variables are.

You're right, I forgot to define SMTP_HELO_HOST. I'm uploading the updated patch.
